Glazer: Kansas City’s Worst Sports Era Ever, Except for Sporting KC & Next Year’s Royals

The answer is simple, YES…

I’d been thinking about it, then I heard WHB’s Kevin Kietzman say it. "This is horrible. It’s been since at least 1983 since Kansas City was this bad in sports."

Actually, I was thinking it had been worse. In 1983 the Royals were still a very good ball club nearing the 1985 World Series. Yes, the Chiefs were a clown act then too, but better than today’s team. Our area college teams were no-shows except for KU basketball, which wasn’t exactly hot either.

Today the Chiefs – as your humble scribe told you two months ago – are one of the NFL’s worst teams. The Royals finished near the bottom again. KU and K-State football is lousy. MU is decent but headed towards at best an 8-4 season with a lower level bowl game.

So yeah, it really does affect the spirit of our city.

There’s no doubt that we as a fan base are blue. We’re down and upset. And "Suck for Luck" may sound cute, but it’s not where we want to be, is it?

I get emails and Facebook messages from friends all over the country saying, "Sorry about your teams." Do you? Naturally, I explain how I deal with it as far as the Chiefs are concerned. With the Royals I generally just stay away and watch from a distance.

Until NOW.

BECAUSE LET’S BE HONEST, the Chiefs are our main thing. The NFL rules. It’s by far bigger than baseball and college sports.

However, I pissed on the Royals all year and rightfully so because they stunk. Then this guy Eric Hosmer came along and wow, it was a whole new ballgame. A George Brett turn an OK or bad team into a contender pretty quickly. And Eric has done just that.

He should be rookie of the year and an MVP candidate next season. That’s something only Brett has ever done here. He is finally the "Brett" we’ve been searching for since 1992 when George retired. Eric is fantastic. Even our pitching as of late has been solid. The Royals are baseball’s hottest team.

I know its too little too late. They boast the best win loss record this month. Still they’ll finish next to last, but it looks like they may not lose 90 games for the first time since Grant took Richmond. They have stated they are going after big name pitching for 2012. Hey, I might even start going to Royals games next year.

I know, it’s David Glass. But I have a weird feeling since he’s near the end of his life, he wants to go out a good guy  a sports winner…not a sports joke.

I’m betting that he spends some big money this coming year.

This club could even win the division next season with two real starters.Of course, so could most teams. Everybody needs pitching.

I can’t believe I just said that, WIN THE DIVISION. My God!

The other good news is Sporting KC has been a monster hit at Legends, Village West, KCK and throughout the metro.

The stadium is the talk of everyone. The attendance and a first place spot is a lift for all of us. They are a very good team with great fans. They started out losing a million games then opened the stadium and couldn’t lose. Nice. Every game a near sell out.

Hey, even the Royals draw over 20,000 now in second to last. People here want a winner, badly. Any winner.

KU basketball is suppose to be down a bit, but I wouldn’t count on that with Bill Self coaching. And I know, all eyes are on WILL THERE BE A BIG TWELVE or TEN or EIGHT….looks like, YES THERE WILL BE.

So yes, this has been awful. The Chiefs and Royals, along with KU and K-State are all clown acts to this point. MU football is decent, but that isn’t good enough to save us from the worst sports year ever.

Take heart, it can only get better. Except for our Chiefs. They’ve dug a huge hole and it may take years for them to recover. 

Damn.

    Glass has a 30 Million Dollar Payroll
    Hunt is 32 Million UNDER the Salary Cap.

    Neither one lives in KC.

    Both of them will die with the first dollar they ever made, firmly esconced in thier wallets.

    Kansas Citians are Little Timmy Cratchit to Ebenezer the “Clarks”Scrooge, and this is a never ending Christmas Story with a bad ending.

    The “Clarks” are gutless, poseurs.

  2. TRUTH says:

    GET OVER YOURSELF
    OK, YOU SAID THE CHIEFS WOULD SUCK… WHE GOT IT THE FIRST 100 TIMES!

    HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU WRITE THE SAME CRAP ABOUT KC SPORTS?? ITS GETTING STALE!

  3. Orphan of the Road says:

    Worst? Nah, not close
    That would be when the A’s came to town. A leisure-service of the NY Yankees (the owner was a part-owner of the Yankees), we would see a whisp of player before they headed to NYC and glory.

    It would be years before MU beat NU.

    Times are bleak now, maybe they will worsen. Baseball downsizes, there go the Royals. The Chiefs continue to spiral down and the fans stop buying tickets, break the lease and move.

    K-State showed some of the spark which made the Big 8 a league no one wanted to play the also-rans because they kicked ass until conference games started.

    The only thing new is the history you don’t know…

    Come on chuck….get a life!
    1. 6:30 am sunday and you’re on this site. come on chuck…get a life for god’s sake. While you’re reading glazes
    hashed over crap stories…most guys are with their women getting some action. If the one you’re with now ain’t
    giving it up….move on buddy. Lifes too short to not have nooky.
    2. Clark hunt doesn’t have the first dollar he made…because he didn’t make any money. Like hernia was born
    into money…clark doesn’t make money…he just tries not to lose too much.
    3. Glaze…please stop! This is the same regurgiatated crap you’ve put out the last 2 weeks. If you want to see some
    interesting sports stories read greghallkc.com or read the sports stuff from the new guy hernia just hired.
    You are old…boring…. by the way glaze…hows that movie coming? Now that hoovers is in the
    box…you said yours was next. I think that all is b.s. Theres no movie…and the book was flop. How many did
    it sell. Tell us…you know….and verify the sales figures thru amazon etc. And the reviews that were posted..
    all phony. Prove to us something bout you is real because everyone on here knows 99.9% of what you
    say is pure b.s.
    No offense glaze…but you claim so much b.s…its’ time to put up or shut up with your claims. I don’t think you’re
    the star you make yourself out to be. And i know everyone on here (except broke back cowboy) doesn’t believe a
    single word you say. Prove yourself…or stfu about all those claims you make…might work with the
    hos but we’re in the showme state…so showme proof that what you say isn’t one big lie.
    Thanks…no excuses this time….show us the proof.

  5. harley says:

    Glass still Half Empty
    Glaze:

    How much you wanna wager per game on the Ol Roy-als 2012 season?

    They gotta go +20 wins just to get above .500 and probably +40 to win the division.

    Not gonna happen even if Hollywood makes another Major League movie.

    Harley (JoJo)
    JoJo can’t let go of his “Bait and Tackle” long enough to figure out what a fuckin paragraph is.

    There ya go, thats it, he is typin with one hand.

    Does JoJo even have a PICTURE of a Harley?

    “…most guys are with their women getting some action. If the one you’re with now ain’t
    giving it up….move on buddy. Lifes too short to not have nooky.”

    JoJo, imaginary sexual relationships with your mom, do not count as “getting some action”.

    JOJO: *on the phone, with one hand* “Come on Glaze pick up.”

    GLAZER’S PHONE MACHINE: “You have just reached 1 800, I am so cool, heh, heh. Leave a message, and I’ll get back to ya, unless its Angie, Amy, Abigail, ALexandra, Black Barbie, Betty, Belle, Becky, oh fuck it, I’m only in the ‘B’s’, look if its a chick call me at the club.”

    JOJO: “I love that message, Craig, it shows your confident and know a lot about pussy and I’m just like ya cause I know a lot about pussy too, but I’m not a con man or a liar like you, only your really cool except for I think you might like Hearne’s car and thats not cool, but if you did like that car you would probably get lots of puss in it, and then you could write about it on kcconfidential and then tell us all a bunch of lies you fuckin loser, and you don’t know shit about football, jsut stick to pussy and whorew you lying bastard!! Will you autograph my copy of ‘King Of Sting”?

    JOJO’S MOM: *screams down basement stairs* “Goddamnit Joseph! Your worse than Tony fuckin Botello. You are 52 years old, and you have GOT TO GET A JOB!!”

    JOJO: “Mom, I do have a job, I am a reporter for kcconfidential. I know sports, and I know pussy!!”

    JOJO’S MOM: *grimacing* “What is that on the keyboard?”

    JOJO: “Er…, ah…, a nocturnal emission?”

    JOJO’S MOM: “Its 3 PM, you’ve been awake for 2 hours.”

    JOJO:

    JOJO’S MOM: “How much money do you make at kcconfidential?”

    JOJO: “I am not sure, Hearne is going to explain the salary structure to me next week whne we are hanging out at Woodside with Craig and all my other buddies.”

    JOJO’S MOM: “You have friends?”

    JOJO: “Yep.”

    JOJO’S MOM: “Real friends, not imaginary friends. You are not actually dating Katy Perry, THAT is in your imagination, so if you have friends, then they should be real. Ok?”

    JOJO: “Yep.”

    JOJO’S MOM: *turns to go up the stairs* “Fuck it I give up.”

    JOJO: “Mom, where ya goin? I’m hungry.”

    JOJO’S MOM: “I gotta call Mrs. Botello.”

  8. Super Dave says:

    Glad for the good comments!
    Now that was worth reading chuck or who ever the hell wrote it. Sure will pick up the comments since Craigs story once again sucked.

  9. chuck says:

    🙂
    🙂

  10. chuck says:

    Hey Glaze
    I think Harley (JoJo) actually wants front row tickets to “Slayer”.

    Just a heads up buddy.

  11. Hearne Christopher says:

    I dunno, I see lots of new stuff here. That David Glass is gonna clean up his act before he checks out and is remembered as Kansas City’s biggest loser. That K-State football is lousy (bad timing) and that he’s be inundated with sympathy cards for the state of KC sports

  12. Hearne Christopher says:

    Need to know what day and which show. Do I sense a sting coming on?

  13. Harley says:

    I blow a couple of meat whistles in JuCo
    now everyone thinks I don’t get the hawties.
    thats
    bul;lshit. I’m ensconsed in pussy rite now. Mr. Whiskers and Ms. Beasley, both rescue cats by the way. Ok, I stoled the cats from the local pet store. Ever try to stick two maine coon cats down your Sponge Bob jammy pants? Well, its only fum for about 30 seconds, once you skeet it makes the scratches sting. Must be the salt.
    Anyway fuck yo chuck, go to chuckie Ceese or
    something.

    PS I apologize Craig and Hearne. You guys are cool. Maybe we can go cruis chicks in Hearnes Fiat.

  14. Bad Ass jew, Berkowitz says:

    Chuck …you’re imposter posting isn’t even funny. Doesnt forgive the fact that you’re old lady is probably getting
    it from someone else. If you’re up at 6am on sundays screwing with this site ther’s something wrongwith your
    life chuckie. Maybe the old lady is getting action from someone else. I knwo you’ve smell her to see if theres someone
    else been down there. I know youre a little concerned because maybe your old lady is gettin it from some other dude.
    Your problem….not mine….i ‘m having a great time with my girlfriend…you’re on kcc…creepy on your part.
    Jew boy berk….i’ve complimented glaze with his picks. You’re not the original hook nose jew berk. That guy had a sure
    hook up with mermaid and never followed thru. Berk is probably hanging with chuck…bot h big losers …no action.
    Glaze…chiefs are bad…worse than bad. You were right about cassell….this guy is terrible….clark needs to unload the
    trio….haley…pioli…and cassell…hell…this is worse than bad.

  19. Hearne Christopher says:

  20. EMAW says:

    How are the Cats looking now?
    Pretty nice win.

  21. BlackJack says:

    Comments?
    So basically this comments section has deteriorated to the point where you just see the same, tired, witless comments by someone named Chuck, Harley and Smartman, or someone pretending to be Chuck, Harley and Smartman, Of course, it is mandatory that each post contains some type of sexual demeaning putdown, racial analogy, and/or bathroom humor.

    Is there anyone else out there?

  22. Hearne Christopher says:

    Uh, obviously
